Wearable sensor technology and aerial dance movement can be integrated to provide a new performance practice and perspective on interactive kinesonic composition. SALTO (sonic aerialist electroacoustic interface), a new musical interface for collaborative works in the aerial arts, demonstrates an initial design for and investigation into the capabilities of such a system. The system incorporates aerial dance trapeze choreography/movement, sensors, and digital synthesis. The software design of SALTO, done in the MaxMSP programming environment also considers parameters and mapping techniques for translating the performer’s perception of the sound during a performance to the viewer. Splinter (2016) for aerial choreographer/performer, SALTO, and Myo Armband, highlights the expressive qualities of the system in a performance setting.
